I absolutely love Sakura. We tried their take away service again and it couldn't have been better. Granted, we don't like far away from them but the food was with us within 15 minutes, great service and really reasonable. Couldn't recommend highly enough! X

Always a good reliable choice if you want good fresh sushi with great service. Always busy in Sakura and I can see why :)

Came here for dinner as we have been meaning to try Sakura for years! Started with spicy tuna roll and scallop nigiri which were both delicious. The fish was so fresh and very generously portioned. Then we had chicken gyoza and soft shell crab tempura again extremely well done. I would say that the tempura batter is not as crunchy... More

We where today (1/1/2015) and we were well served with nice and kindly people talking with us. Most probably we will be back.

I have been going to Sakura for a while now and it is one of the places I can go and basically guarentee a decent meal and a good experience. I arrived with no reservation and was lucky enough to be able to get a seat, my friend turned up 45 mins late and the staff were very patient with... More

Went here as a couple on a Tuesday evening. We got seated straight away and were the only customers in the restaurant, although we arrived pretty early in the evening. My partner had the tempura udon soup and I had the seafood ramen. We also shared the aubergine dish which was nice but found it a little oily and perhaps... More

My mum and I always find ourselves heading for to Sakura for dinner when I come home from uni. Definitely the best Japanese food in Portsmouth, very authentic and a really great selection of dishes. I'd highly recommend the Southsea Maki - always delicious!

There's sushi and there's sushi, Sakura has come a long way since it started a few years ago. Service is always one of the friendliest in town and the food is very good. I love the sushi selection and there's plenty of other choices to suit a group of people. The food is also reasonably priced making it the place... More

Went very early on a Friday evening. Situated in a vibrant student area, which the restaurant reflects. Very fast and friendly service, with tasty food. Not refined Japanese cuisine, but good nevertheless & reasonably priced, which suits its location and customer base. Can't comment on the sashimi particularly and the tempura wasn't the greatest. I suspect their ramen, udon, curries... More

If you like Japanese food then Sakura doesn't disappoint. There is so much to choose from in terms of sushi, noodles, ramen, curries and more. The plum wine is an absolute must! There have a quick turnaround so your food does come out as soon as it is ready but it is worth it. My favourites are the spicy tuna... More
